Why Kaylee Jackson’s uses sterling silver, and why 40000 customers love it

Why Sterling silver?

You probably know that we make a lot of our jewelry with Sterling Silver, but why is that?

Why not use pure silver or gold or any other type of metal? Well, it’s actually because sterling silver is superior in many ways due to the flexibility, shine and molding ability.

Sterling silver is not the toughest metal due it’s high silver content (92, 5%) – for silverware like chandeliers you’d prefer to use silver with more copper (up to 30%) to make the silver sturdier. Pure silver is too soft to make things from. The same goes for pure gold which is also easily deformed – and that would be a shame if that happened to your favorite jewelry.

Silver with a heavenly name

The name sterling silver is thought to descend from early England or the Middle East referring to the word star or “starling”. Coins found in Normandie were made from Sterling silver and stamped with a star – probably an explanation for the name Sterling silver.

Less work for you, more time to enjoy your jewelry

Another reason for using Sterling silver is because it will not oxidize as fast as pure silver – meaning less polishing for you. This way, your jewelry will look spotless – even after 40 years or more. Your daughter or son will thank you for this if you decide to one day pass it on. Even the old British kings valued the sterling silver for their shine and low maintenance.

Hypoallergenic, your skin will thank you

But why not use other metals as nickel or brass? Well, unfortunately, these metals can cause allergic reactions. In Sterling silver’s case, the only other addition to the silver is copper. Copper and silver seldom give allergy problems which means that you can wear your earrings without risking your health.

And that is why (unless clearly stated otherwise in the product page), all of our pieces of jewelry are made from 925 Sterling Silver.

  1. Please help. I click on your site and want to view your jewelry and a pop up happens to spin the wheel and I can’t and I can’t leave the page.

  2. Too many “jewelry stores” use rhodium plating on their silver jewelry which, in my opinion, ruins a great silver ring, necklace, pair of earrings, whatever the item may be…..if I order silver, I want silver, not something plated to silver no matter the reason. I love getting my silver polishing clothes out and making my silver sparkle. I love silver, always have, always will. Finding Kaylee Jackson and being able to support an artist’s dream of selling her rings, earrings, necklaces, while paying reasonable, affordable prices is a win for all. I have a lot of loose diamonds from old rings that will become a custom piece of jewelry and so far, all I know is that it will definitely be silver.

  3. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article. But should remark on some general things, The web site style is
    ideal, the articles is really excellent : D. Good job, cheers
